On September 8, 1998 the Richland School Board adopted a new reading list for secondary literature curriculum. There were eighty new novels on the adopted list. The other half of the list of new novels is scheduled to be adopted by the board in the summer of 1999. The new novels on these two lists are about half of the total number of novels used or planned for use in the high school English classrooms. The first eighty novels received attention of volunteer community reviewers during the month of July, 1998. Several of the novels received questioning comments and even outright objections to their use in the classroom from community reviewers. This report is an attempt to alert students and parents to some of the novels that were described as containing objectionable material for high school classroom use.
